Asian girl scam suspect

Hi everyone,

After a few research I found this sub.

A few days ago I was contacted on my work phone via Whatsapp by a beautiful asian girl. She asked for a french tourism office because she intend to go to France this winter during christmas. Obviously it was a mistake so I told her so. She kept talking to me. Being in IT I instantly blocked her for security reason (she could be trying to penetrate our organization via social engineering or something).

But you know what killed the cat ? Curiosity. So I added her on my personal whatsapp. After a few day of exchange she seemed pretty nice : she pretends to be named Caty, single malay mother in Singapure, owner of a beauty clinic. Knowing it was a scam (NO ONE, especially beautiful malaysian business woman, speaks to 30 something average french IT Technician after a wrong number) I tried to push her to reveal the scam.

Yesterday she at last begun her move my talking about her “teacher” (Tharman Shanmugaratnam, the former singapurian Finance Minister, which is smart because this person is real, AND is a defender of cryptocurrency) that made her rich by investing in crypto. She didn’t told me to invest yet, probably because I told here I already invested somewhere else, but she keep putting the subject on the table casually.

I tried to reverse search the pic that she sent me (I played the horny single man to try to see if she was a love scam) on Baidu but nothing came up. I’d like to find the real person she is using pictures of, there is a picture of a boy and I find this disgusting to be using some boy to make some quick buck, but I guess the real woman online presence is well obfuscated. If you could orient me to more powerful reverse search tools

EDIT : for clarity sake : she contacted me first with a UK phone number, then she asked if she could switch to her personal number which is Malay. She justified by telling me that the UK phone number is to keep contact with her english friends

    **Fake Investment Scams that use Fake Cryptocurrency Websites:**

    Fake cryptocurrency websites controlled by scammers are becoming more and more common. Sometimes the scam begins with a romance scammer who claims that they can help the victim invest in cryptocurrency. Victims are told to buy cryptocurrency of some kind using a legitimate cryptocurrency exchange, and then they are told to send their cryptocurrency to a website wallet address where it will be invested. Sometimes the scam begins with a notice that the victim won cryptocurrency, and it is in their account on a website. In either case, the scammer controls the website, so they make it look like there is money in the victim’s account on their website. Then the scammer (or the scammer pretending to be someone official who is associated with the website) tells the victim that they have to put more money into the website before they can get their money out of the website. Sometimes the scammer will let the victim “remove” some of their money from the website (actually it’s just the scammer sending some of the victim’s money back to the victim) as a way to make the website seem legitimate, before asking the victim to “reinvest” even more of their money. Of course all of the money sent by the victim has gone directly into the scammer’s personal wallet, and any additional money sent by the victim to retrieve their money from the website will also go directly into the scammer’s personal wallet, and all of the information about money being held by the website was totally fake.
